we took the tour and were well guided through a couple of the rooms in the main mansion for an hour, but most of it cannot been seen. i think you should better just walk around it and in the gardens

We went to several plantations and this was our favorite. It was well worth the drive. Be sure to spend time on the grounds too. Swing under the live oak trees. Shop and dine. The tour itself was pricey but worth it. It was probably twice as long as the one at Oak Alley. They let us wait inside since... More

After touring many plantations from Memphis to New Orleans, this was the granddaddy of them all. The outside and the grounds as beautiful and very impressive. The house is huge! However, it is now run as a B&B as well as a touring plantation. Almost none of the furniture was original or even period. A decorator had been brought in... More

Thank you for visiting Nottoway Plantation. I am very saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your tour here. We do strive to give all of our guests the most accurate historical information about the Plantation. With that being said, the Plantation is over 150 years old and the Randolph family that lived in the Home was a very... More

Our self-guided tour with headsets, was lovely. I am glad we arrived at a time to not go on the guided tour. We all love history and architecture, so when we had finished listening to a section, we could stand and discuss it. The home is beautiful and we loved the details. Historically, there really needs to be some updating... More

Beer fest 2016 was awesome. Loved the music and atmosphere. Enjoyed the "friendly" workers at every booth.

The tour was great. Julie, the guide brought us around the Main mansion and told us about the history of the house and the family that built it. We could ask any questions and she told us loads of facts. The downside was the price per person. $20 plus tax per person is a bit steep for a 45min to... More

The exterior of the house is simply stunning. We took the tour of the house after having lunch in the restaurant. The tour was OK, the tour guides wore antebellum dresses. The only thing that was disconcerting was that some rooms were used as B&B houses so you met housekeeping during the tour, and there were some modern stuff in... More

This plantation home is one of wonder and beauty. An absolute dream home from the outside to the details of the architecture inside. Every single room had a story and why it was built the way it was. One of our favorite rooms was the "White Room" which was just beautiful!! There was soooo much detail put into this plantation... More
